KIRKUS REVIEW

A simple story of a Navajo boy has a desert calmness to it as it describes his efforts to prove himself capable of herding the family sheep. Determined that his father a silversmith, and his mother a weaver, shall keep at their trades, Little Boy rides out one day, saves a lamb from a rattlesnake and convinces his parents that he is man enough. Stylized pictures in Navajo colors by an Indian artist Tom Two Arrows have a dignity to them. Good. Average type.
